United Arab Emirates: Land Cruiser an icon

The latest official data I could get my hands on dates back to 2003 and was limited to Abu Dhabi. The Toyota Land Cruiser was leading the way then ahead of the Toyota Corolla, Nissan Sunny, Nissan Patrol and Mitsubishi Lancer. Observation in Abu Dhabi and Dubai during my last trip there in December 2008 confirmed that the situation has only changed a little since.

In spite of its high price, the Toyota Land Cruiser seems to still be the best selling vehicle in the UAE, and has actually reached quite an iconic status in the area, by far its most successful market in the world. The Toyota Corolla, Nissan Tiida and Honda Civic could be following, and the Toyota Yaris sedan and Land Cruiser Prado are also doing very well. More pictures: click on ‘Read more’ below.
